Okay, SNL was already live, but this weekend, for one night only, it’s moving from its usual digs at NBC Studios to the New York Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre.
Arrested Development‘s Michael Cera will be hosting “Saturday Night Live – On Strike!” with musical guest Yo La Tengo on Saturday, Nov. 17. The entire current cast of SNL is expected to be on hand to perform a selection of favorite sketches.
As if that wasn’t exciting enough, on Monday, Nov. 19, the cast of 30 Rock, including Tina Fey, Tracy Morgan, Jane Krakowski and Alec Baldwin, will perform a live episode of their series at the UCB Theatre. I think it’s safe to say that there may be some mocking of the show’s network, NBC, and its parent company, General Electric.
Unfortunately, advance tickets for both shows are already sold out, although the UCB website indicates that limited tickets will be available at the door for “30 Rock – On Strike!”
